Dissolving adderall XR in water

I have 10mg adderall XR, but it's way too strong. Is it possible to dissolve it in a water bottle and drink half of it, then drink the other half later?

Re: Dissolving adderall XR in water

What is your rationale behind this? You'll have difficulty finding medical professionals who would condone this, as XR medication is meant to be taken a certain way. As I understand it, Adderall XR is designed so that half of the beads dissolve right away, and half of them are delayed release beads that only dissolve at certain pH (acidity) levels. My guess is that you'd end up with a water bottle filled with undissolved beads at the bottom, and I don't see how this would offer any clinical benefits, and it'd also be a waste of money.

Re: Dissolving adderall XR in water

Dissolve in water bottle + shake it up and drink half of it, as a way to take half the pill instead of the entire thing at once

I'd rather do that than try to manually eye the beads and divide it in half each time

I guess what I'm asking is if the drug still retains effectiveness while in water throughout the day? Or does water degrade it somehow

The manufacturer specifically states not to do what you're asking about.

You might be better off talking to your doctor about a lower dose. I think Adderall XR comes in a 5mg capsule as well.
